Why Donate?

Much of SEMM Foundation's budget for the music education services and community radio station operations is raised directly from the generosity of donors like you. We are a community service oriented organization committed to keeping music education and jazz radio alive in Central Ohio.

As the licensee of a non-commercial radio station, one of the ways the new Station at 98.5 FM will fund its programming and general operations is through donations in support of the arts and underwriting support from individuals, local businesses, foundations and corporations.

Jazz and community related news, information and educational content are important to keeping the community vibrant, diversified and informed.  In the best of times and even in the worse with our present economy, we reach out to individuals, corporations, foundations and others to ensure that we have an operating and support budget that will sustain our broadcast ability and enhance the lives of the citizens of our city.  Help us do so by underwriting, donating or making a contribution to our station.  Here is how you can help and be involved.
